Installation issues / Re: 10.04 Install issue
« on: May 31, 2013, 10:31:35 pm »
Just tried with the new 1004 release, same results, initial install did the test for alpha-blending which worked. When I got to the home-screen, the flickr images were showing and I could move the cursor with the mouse, but I had the same issue, could not get to any of the menus.

I did the following;

         apt-get update
         apt-get upgrade
         apt-get -y remove --purge fglrx* --force-yes
         apt-get -y install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri --force-yes
         dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
         apt-get -y install --reinstall xserver-xorg-core --force-yes
         rm /etc/X11/xorg.con*

After reboot, I only get a grey screen with an arrow , even with "Static Images"

Any ideas would be appreciated

Trying to figure out how to do that now, but I downloaded it about 5 times, using a wired network connection...

I am re-trying a 1004 install hoping my issues will be minimized using the latest release. I downloaded the file indicated on the homepage;

I tried burning/re-downloading and burning again but I keep getting;

                                                                                        isolinux : Disk error 10,AX = 4200, drive EF

                                                                                        boot failed : press a key to retry

I also tried burning at the slowest speed, but I still get the same error....

Am I downloading the correct file?

Have you been able to get your usb soundcard to work? I ordered several to support multiple zones but when I plug the usb soundcard in it is not picked up by the system.
Any advice on how to manually configure the usb soundcard would be appreciated.

Is there anyone else with a similar setup that has their system running well? I'm happy with the Hybrid/Core build sunce it is low power and quiet, but if I can't get things working I may need to scrap this and go with something else...

Gigabyte GA-F2A8585X-UP4 (Radeon HD 7000-series graphics (DX11) integrated with the APU)

Further update,

I got to work on the system again, so I wiped everything off and started with a clean install. After the initial setup (not running any commands) I chose Alpha Blending (the Test worked) and got through Sara. At that point I could see the flickr pictures and the pointer when I moved the mouse, but could not see the menus (only a momentary flash if I clicked the mouse)..

Then I did as l3mce instructed;

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get -y remove --purge fglrx* --force-yes
apt-get -y install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri --force-yes
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
apt-get -y install --reinstall xserver-xorg-core --force-yes
rm /etc/X11/xorg.con*

From then on, I could not get any graphics to work (not even Static Images; all tests just show a grey background)

If anyone has any suggestions, please chime in....

Can you post what you did to disable the driver? I may give it a try....

Further update; returned the Nvidia GT 610 card as I could not get sound out of HDMI, did a re-install (10.04) off the DVD, but the graphics are still not working correctly.

I believe the issue is with the "Radeon HD 7000-series graphics (DX11) integrated with the APU" which is part of my mobo, no matter what I try I cannot get the system graphics correct so this must be the issue. I have the "fglrx* drivers installed on my system, but maybe the HD 7000 is not supported. Just wanted to keep this up to date in case someone else has this hardware.

I've searched on adding the correct driver, and I tried what is illustrated on this page;

but no dice, I'll keep hunting and report back if I meet with success

I did disable the onboard video, but it did not seem to help, no audio, and the playback on videos was not working correctly, I was trying to build a low-power and quiet Hybrid/Core, but I may have chosen my hardware unwisely...

Just as a running log in hopes this may help someone along the way, I re-installed the entire system (10.04) using the NVidia card but I could not get sound out of the HDMI so I went back and tried the HDMI connector on the mobo which also is not giving me a good UI as Video files do not play correctly and when they do show there is no way to stop them, fast forward, etc...

Other issues, Insteon is slow to set up and I cannot get the 7970 Phone orbiter to show up...

Kind of stuck....

Not sure if this is correct, but it finally got my 7970 registered;

Press Menu Button on the phone, get to "Network Configuration" and select
Press "**#" to unlock
Scroll to Alternate TFTP and make it "Yes"
Scroll up to "TFTP Server 1" and put the address of your Core in (default
Press "Save"

That got my phone registered although I was unable to get the Orbiter on the screen, so this may not be the correct way to do this....

I bought a Geforce GT 610 Video Card to try and avoid the issues I've been running into, now I get "Failed to setup X" on startup, I'm poking in the dark, but I did this so far;

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
apt-get -y install --reinstall xserver-xorg-core --force-yes
rm /etc/X11/xorg.con*

Still the same result, if anyone has an idea please chime in...

Had go for scrambled boobs as I learn how to use ssh...

My uname value was not as you specified, so I ran the commands, the first time I tried I typed "libgl1" incorrectly (thought it was "eleven" on the end) got a message that libg11 package was not found (of course) and then would just get a grey background after going through the AV Wizard.

I realized my mistake this morning, so I re-ran everything but I still get the grey background, none of the tests following UI choice show anything but a black arrow on a grey background.

I may have broke this by not getting libgl1 correct the first time...

Pardon my ignorance, but I think I got it (I had a tough time finding the vertical line, it shows up as a broken line, but I got something...)

00:01.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Trinity [Radeon HD 7660D] [1002:9901]

I know from the forums that NVidia is the way to go for LinuxMCE, but I had seen on the Forums that support for Radeon was working. Maybe I just need to get an NVidia card...only issue is that I don't have my capture or tuning card(s) yet and then I won't have room on my mobo. I may not need this as a Hybrid, ideally if the Android stick computers could work as a Media Director, but not sure about any progress in that direction.
